Fire Sprinkler Servicing & Maintenance

Fire Sprinkler Servicing in the UK to BS9251:2014

We are one of the leading companies delivering Fire Sprinkler Servicing in the UK. We pride ourselves on a great value service that is efficient and thorough with the very best in customer care.

Legal Requirement

It is no surprise that an annual service for a Sprinkler System is a legal requirement.  The huge danger of fire to people and property has sadly been highlighted in the last couple of years. Something we rarely consider until the worst happens. Catching a fire in time potentially reduces the devastating effects, saves lives and minimises property damage. This is the reason why fires successfully controlled by fire sprinklers tend not to make the news.

For decades fire sprinklers across the world have enjoy an extremely high level of success.  Correctly installed in buildings and regularly serviced fire sprinklers have proved to deliver significant reductions in the degree of damage caused by fire to both life and property.  Regular testing and maintenance is a requirement for sprinklers to work reliably.

How often do fire sprinklers need to be serviced?

It is a legal requirement to service Fire Sprinklers every 12 months. This ensures that the equipment is in good working order. The importance of a working fire sprinkler system can not be underestimated. It is vital for Domestic and Residential Fire Sprinklers to have a full in-depth service and it is part of the BS9251:2014 British Standard.

Fire Sprinkler Service and Maintenance Checks List

These checks ensure that the sprinkler system will operate as designed and that nothing has changed that would prevent automatic operation. During the sprinkler service, we check the following:

  • All sprinkler heads and cover plates are clear from obstruction and decorative materials.
  • Nothing has changed to effect coverage of the sprinkler heads.
  • There are no signs of leaks or corrosion.
  • The water supplies function as designed. Checked by conducting system pressures and flows tests.
  • Pump and Tank system operate as designed.
  • The system is linked to an alarm system that operates when a flow test is conducted.
  • The system valve sets are secured open and clearly labelled.

If any of these do not meet the criteria, then it is advised that remedial works are completed as soon as is practical.
